Storm Isha is forecast to bring strong winds and heavy rain to the UK later on Sunday January 21 and into Monday January 22.

The Met Office has released new warnings with the whole of the UK now facing yellow and amber alerts starting from this Sunday.

A yellow weather warning for rain has been issued for the south of England, including the southeast.

Other parts of the UK have been issued yellow and amber warnings for wind.

The Met Office issues weather warnings through the National Severe Weather Warning Service when severe weather has the potential to bring impacts to the UK.

These warnings are given a colour (yellow, amber or red) depending on a combination of both the impact the weather may have and the likelihood of those impacts occurring.

Yellow and Amber warnings represent a range of impact levels and likelihoods.

The yellow weather warning means that heavy rain will lead to some flooding and transport disruption on Sunday.

What to Expect

  • There is a small chance that homes and businesses could be flooded, causing damage to some buildings
  • Where flooding occurs, there is a slight chance of delays or cancellations to train and bus services
  • Spray and flooding could lead to difficult driving conditions and some road closures
